General Election 2019: Corby and East Northants - Conservative Tom Pursglove
It has been the greatest honour and privilege of my life to be your local Member of Parliament for the past four and a half years, and to represent the area that I grew up in.
Despite the challenging national political climate, I have always worked tirelessly on local issues and am proud to have helped thousands and thousands of local people with all manner of problems and concerns in that time, and delivered results on the key issues.
Throughout, I have been readily accessible, as I believe in getting out there, listening to you and campaigning hard on the issues that matter, hence why I have regularly knocked on doors in Oundle and King’s Cliffe and the many surrounding villages, not just at election time, but all year round, and held my weekly advice surgeries across the constituency.
If re-elected, I am determined to continue that work and follow through on our clear commitments - which tie up with the key priorities raised in the conversations I have week in, week out, on the doorstep - to put more police on the beat, invest more in our local NHS services, including boosting the availability of GP appointments, and further increase funding for our local schools to ensure that every young person has the very best start in life, and as someone who went to a comprehensive school locally, that matters to me enormously.
I am honoured to have been re-selected as the Conservative Party’s candidate for the General Election on December 12 and I very much hope that Corby and East Northamptonshire residents will again put their trust in me and allow me the opportunity to continue to work hard and campaign on the issues that matter most to local people - listening, campaigning and delivering. Together, we have achieved so much, but there is still much more to do.
